JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - U.S. Rep. Don Young, currently the longest serving Republican in the U.S. House, has filed to seek a 23rd term.

Young on Thursday filed papers to run for re-election - just over three months after he won re-election to his current term. The next election is in 2016.

Young has made no secret of his plan to seek another term.

He said in a release that the filing comes close to what would have been his 52nd wedding anniversary with his late wife, whom he said would be proud that he has not given up the fight on behalf of Alaskans.

He said his motivation and enthusiasm for Alaskans is as strong today as when he arrived in Washington, D.C.
